Camp Healing Hearts, a free overnight therapeutic family bereavement camp, will be held May 20-21, 2016, at Little Rock’s Camp Aldersgate. The camp is hosted by Kaleidoscope Grief Center, a program of Methodist Family Health.

Camp Healing Hearts is offered for children ages 5-18 and their families who are grieving the death of a loved one. Caregiver participation is required. The 24-hour experience begins at 5 p.m. Friday, May 20, and concludes at 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 21.

Campers have time to reflect, reconnect and rediscover on an individual, family and community level by participating in therapeutic and recreational activities. The schedule includes “Heart to Heart” peer support groups, a candlelight memorial service and traditional camp activities such as a campfire and s’mores, fishing, swimming, arts and crafts and a ropes course.
